2018 Award Recipients
The Sarah Toms’ Memorial Scholarship
Every year a deserving senior JSTA student who possesses outstanding dance potential and work ethic is awarded the Sarah Toms’ Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship entitles them to free ballet classes for a year.
Sarah Toms started with JSTA as a six year old pupil and completed all her training with us. She qualified as a teacher and began her teaching career at JSTA. Shortly after beginning teaching she was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Sarah passed away in 2001 at just 21. Sarah was a vibrant, energetic and beautiful person whose sense of joy lit up the world around her.
In honour of her memory The Sarah Toms’ Memorial Scholarship was established.
The Charlotte Cup
The Charlotte Cup is presented to the Most Promising Newcomer amongst JSTA’s junior students.
The Cup was donated to Julie Sianne Theatre Arts by Charlottes Dancewear, Byfleet who for many years were a great supporter and provider of dancewear to JSTA students.
